#5 Team Need

So #2 ended up being perimeter defense, and the difference between the second-most votes (3 point shooting, which might be changed due to yesterday's trade) and third-most (ballhandling) was substantial enough that we'll round out the top 5 with the categories that were in the initial poll. So to recap:

  1. Getting to the rim from the perimeter and finishing
  2. Perimeter defense
  3. 3 point shooting
  4. Ballhandling

More below the jump.

In order to fill the word count with this post, I'll focus on whether yesterday's trade should affect those rankings. Personally, #1 probably stays the same, but #4 seems more important than #3. Budinger does help their finishing at the rim in this offense; maybe he needs to rely on good passes to do so, but he's a good enough finisher at the rim that it compensates a little bit for not having a fearsome dribble-drive threat. His work on corner 3s also fills a huge need, based on the shot charts Zach Harper provided yesterday. (As a side note, it's encouraging that the team recognized such a specific need and filled it in this way. It makes me think the Adelmans and whatever stat work the team does is going to help their decision making.)
